Maryland announces plans for full stadium during 2021 college football season
Add Maryland to the growing list of colleges that are planning to allow full capacity for football games during the 2021 season. The school made the announcement on Monday morning.
“We are very grateful to the officials in the state of Maryland, Prince George’s County and the University of Maryland who continued to safely navigate us through these difficult and unprecedented times,” said Maryland athletic director Damon Evans. “We knew the day would come when we could welcome our loyal Terp fans back to our venues at full capacity in a safe manner. This is wonderful news for our community and the entire state of Maryland. We are excited to have every seat available for our Terp Family to come out and cheer on our Terrapins.”
Maryland is scheduled to play seven home games during the 2021 season. Opponents coming to College Park this fall include: West Virginia, Howard, Kent State, Iowa, Indiana, Penn State and Michigan.
This will be Maryland’s third season under head coach Mike Locksley. In 2020, the Terrapins were able to play just five games of the potential nine-game schedule laid out by the B1G. Maryland finished the year 2-3.
